Zathroth, I'm gonna update my CS with a link to a picture reference; but it won't be posted 'til tomorrow. I need to scan it, but it's way too late at night here.
I'm not dead! I'm getting better... >.>

Also, exactly how skilled are our characters allowed to be? I'm guessing students are all prodigies of a sort, but how much is too much?

Students are not prodigies, they have just been tested and have been found to have some elemental prowess.

I hope I'm not a late runner in this:

Name: Thorne Urien

Codename: Pending, I ‘spose.

Age: 13

Appearance: Reference picture, as drawn by Ro (Another 'realistic' one w/ a haircut, drawn by k-hallowseve). Thorne reaches to about 5’ 6” in terms of height, and has a rather extreme muscular build for. His hair is often accurately described as being “wild,” its crimson red tinge going off in every direction, and probably long enough to tie in a ponytail if he bothered to sort it all out. His eyes are a rather unique lime green, making them seem almost luminescent under the right light. He’s normally fair skinned, but due to his frequent outings in the sun, he does have a slight tan. In terms of clothing, he’s usually adorned with the darker variety, such a dark pair of blue or black jeans, and a shirt of a similar color. The clothing item that seems to remain consistent, though, is a very aviator-esque leather jacket of a dark brown coloration.

Weapon of Choice: A large scythe with a shaft that is about 200 centimeters long (about 6’ 5”), and with the actual blade being about 60 centimeters (about 2’). Due to the sheer limitations such a weapon would cause, it’s made of relatively light materials. The pole itself is made of a highly flexible wood, likely bamboo, and coated in an equally lightweight metal. It should be noted that this metal plating was made to be thin and flexible (or malleable), and as a result, is usually not prone to snapping. However, that’s not the only special feature of the weapon. Somewhere near its center, the scythe can be twisted and a button then pushed to separate the weapon into two. The contraption would reveal that the part of the shaft that holds the scythe’s blade acts as a makeshift sheath for another blade. This would give Thorne the benefit of a one-handed (albeit slightly unwieldy) scythe, and a thin bladed sword with a rather long hilt. Understandably, due to a part of the scythe having to be hollowed out for this to work, there are some minor weaknesses at the initial weapon’s base.

Personality: Part insane wouldn’t be too crazy of a description to use to summarize Thorne’s character. However, this really isn’t the case, as he can be considered, relatively, mentally stable. His quirkiness is really only because of him having to mature at far too young of an age, and seeing the harshness of the world far too early. As a result, his mind is only partially unhinged. Arrogant and cocky, and can easily be described as a brute, Thorne has also been known to pick fights where fights needed not to be picked. Though, it should be noted that he usually isn’t the one to start the fight, often goading his day’s ‘victim’ into striking him first. In that respect, calculating is another word that can also be associated with him. In terms of socialization, he’s brutally blunt and, at times, excessively talkative. Especially if he happens to be talking about himself. He is generally 'good-natured' (the term is use loosely), though, but specifically to the people who keep a level tongue with him. Anything that he does that can be described as abrasive are usually things where he didn’t intend to create ill will. Though, there are certainly times where it has been his full intention to cause a negative reaction. He just finds such interactions to be far too "interesting" to go without for too long.

That was what I meant in the sense of being prodigies. So this is going by the rules that "we're special, but not THAT special," right?

In this regard, how skilled with our weapons or fighting styles are we allowed to be, considering our ages? You probably wouldn't want my character throwing a "one-inch punch," or being a complete master of unarmed strikes. I'm willing to surrender such things for the purpose of story, but what about techniques and undue skill with the other students and their weapons? I'd rather not assume too much or too little, and be left out in the cold because I wanted to play fair or played a little too rough.

Okay here's the deal: If ANY student has a technique they're not sure about being too powerful, message me and I'll tell you if it is or isn't.

Okay, I think I need to say something here. I'm in the army, and as such there are going to be times when I won't be able to post for an extended period due to training and what have you. For instance, the next two weeks? Not happening. And two or three days after that, I'll be gone for another two weeks.

What I'm saying is, my posts will, at times, be infrequent and/or non-existent. Now, I would tell you now whether or not our training schedule will interfere with at least the start of the game, but you've been noticeably ambivalent on the subject.

I'm not complaining about that, honestly; I understand that deadlines can be rather difficult to pinpoint, especially if you want a certain number of people to join in first. But if I'm not going to be there at the start of the RP when all the action is ramping up, or if most of it is going to take place during a heavy training season--or, for that matter, a deployment--then there's really no reason for me to hang around waiting for it to start.

Just throw me a bone, man; I joined the forum specifically for this RP after all.
Peace, Dustman

Use proper grammar and be more descriptive.
Zath: Behold, Karo: The only woman in existence who can make Fenix shut the fuck up.
Redsnow: That, and, frankly, if Karo doesn't like you that much, your character is probably going to die soon after his acceptance anyway.
Keiran: Bad RPs don't get picked, unmemberable RPs get ignored.
Zelosse: I don't usually laugh at blatant attitude, but when I do. It usually involves Karo.

plus use the given character sheet.

And Dustman, I'm really not sure about when this RP's gunna start. I have to keep a few promises I made on this page, and that's going to be extremely difficult due to some horrible news I just recieved.

Student character sheet
Name: Conan

Age 13

Appearance: 5”5 with green eyes and a beetle hair cut, brown hair colour his head is the shape of a watermelon but not as big. He is a large boy with thick arms and legs and belly. The way he dresses is that of your regular boy with a black t-shirt with the band underowth logo on it and dark blue sweat pants

Weapon: Conan carries a large hammer with him that was Previously owned by his brother. It was made by his father who was a weapon smith the hammer has the family crest engraved on both sides of the hammers head. Along the handle is engraved the words “to my favourite son Cole may this weapon give you the strength to win any fight”
Conan uses this hammer to remind him self of how he has to catch up and surpass his brother

Personality: Conan has a short temper in regards to his weight as he feels it adds power to his attacks and an laid back slacker way of living like rarely doing his homework. Yet in battle practice he is stronger then most people and his knowledge of weapons is massive. Any mention to his family and Conan becomes distant and depressed on account of how his father and mother worshiped his protégé of a brother Cole.
(hope im not too late)

I think you mean *Previously* not *Perversely* unless said brother was using it for demonic rituals or something... XD

Is there a start up date yet? or are we still in planning?

Use proper grammar and be more descriptive.


And USE PUNCTUATION. Remember Periods, Commas, Colons Exclamation points and their buddies are your friends.

Also, isn't it a bit strange that his main elements are Darkness and shadow, but he loves being in the light? It just seems off. You wouldn't see a Fire Adept that loves the water for example. Or an Earth adept that loved flying/skydiving. Just my opinion.

Just one more. If he's 6ft tall, (which is HUGE for a 14 yr old btw...) and has SOME muscle, He's not going to weigh 130 no matter how scrawny he may be. 180 is the average around 6ft people, so scrawny, I'd have to say 165-170 at least. MAYBE 155-160.
